Gratitude Training and LGAT - CULTS
Date: March 05, 2019 11:49AM
Hello everyone, I'm new here.
I recently found this website and skimmed through many threads with criticisms of Gratitude Training and other LGATs.
As a person with first hand experience in Gratitude Training, I'd like to lend my own opinion to this forum. Over time, I will divulge some things I haven't seen mentioned yet on this forum.
Firstly, I want to say - I very much think Gratitude Training is a Cult.
I say this with anger and embarrassment- as I did things with trainers and other enrollees that I now find distasteful and appalling.
I'd like to start with a summary.
Primarily- Gratitude Training is an EXTREME Leftist, New Age Pyramid Scheme that believes it is saving the world, by convincing everyone who goes beyond Part One, that they are personally, the 'Source of ALL things'- GOD- AND if they should come to that realization,in this lifetime- they will be able to grant their every desire, by simply changing their 'beingness'.
Gratitude Training is an exercise and indoctrination into Justified Narcissism.
I will have deeper criticism on this, as this thread progresses, but let me start here. From my up-close, personal experience:
There is NOT ONE Owner, Manager, Trainer or Coach in the Gratitude Training organization whose life is even reasonably managed.
I saw deeply dysfunctional relationships, drug, sex and alcohol addiction, poverty and blatant deceit among the staff.
What I acknowledge them for, is their ability to camouflage themselves as learned and successful individuals- all while- deceiving people, lying to them, causing rifts in families and promoting an atmosphere where people relinquish their lives in order to promote the business.
I hope my words and further detail help many people avoid becoming mixed up with this propaganda machine.
